Redford, May, 1991 - November 2005. R.I.P.

Redford was 14-years-old (87 in dog years according to the veterinarian). He was really special and we noticed the day before Thanksgiving that he wasn't feeling well. Labored breathing and very slow to move. We called the vet on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and finally heard from them on Friday, November 25 and took him in at 4:30 p.m.

He was dehydrated, had a collapsed lung and the x-rays showed cancer of the lungs. We kissed him and hugged him and I nibbled his cheek; then we and bade him farewell.

Stomps With Foot and I made the decision and I can't tell you how hard that was, yet it was the best thing to do for the king of the dachsunds. I really miss him. Really badly.
